Women in Leadership Lectures, Cover of Jan/Feb Vancouver VISION Magazine
The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with our sponsors are pleased to present our next Women in Leadership Lecture, Afternoon Tea. This series of events focuses on the female leadership in Clark County and beyond, with the goal of creating a space to cultivate and celebrate the leadership qualities of professional women committed to excellence, collaboration, and tenacity.
Event Overview and Timeline:
On October 30th, we will welcome guests to a 3:00 p.m. social hour to kick off a tea at the Black Pearl.
At 4:00 p.m., guests will enjoy a full afternoon tea service with specialty foods from Simply Thyme Catering and a mix of hand crafted tea prepared by Jennifer Peterson, a certified tea specialist.
During the tea, guests will be welcomed by our host and emcee. Our host will moderate between our two featured speakers, who will share their leadership experiences within seven focus areas: upbringing, education, challenges and adversity, career pathways, mentorship, passions, and life-balance. Our speakers, host, emcee, and sponsors exemplify the saying, "When there's a WILL, there's a way."
Following the afternoon tea will be a VIP reception (including a beverage) at 5:00 p.m. for an opportunity to connect with speakers and attendees.

The GVCC has a vision to build a collaborative network of women with the purpose of supporting female leaders in our community through the Women in Leadership Lecture Series. We hope that when you face a roadblock that challenges your leadership, you look to the WILL network for guidance. We will demonstrate the type of connections we hope you will continue creating on your own by setting a follow up lunch for pairs of women to enjoy together three weeks after the event. Each woman who invests in this program by giving generously of their time will receive a one-of-a-kind gold bracelet from Erik Runyan Jewelers, with a motif on it that signifies "when there's a will, there's a way."
